I want to drive

I will take it by and see what the deal is at emissions. I HAVE to have collector insurance to exempt it. Current insurance is 1000 miles a year only. I put 800 on it in 5 months. I will check out requirements and other insurance companies. Problem with collector has been truck isn't valued very high or a rare year. Pretty stock 73 C10 with a *****ing 383 in it. I told current company that 73 was first year of this body style and as a step side it was a sought after truck. I was stretching the truth a little.

Make sure you are correctly interpreting the state rules on emissions and inspection. In my state (Virginia) a vehicle is emissions exempt after it is 25 years old. This exemption is regardless of how it is registered and insured.

I currently have my truck registered as antique, which means its also exempt from inspection. This limits how I can use it (can't use it to drive to work) and how many miles I can drive. However, if I get a standard state inspection and put regular plates on it I can drive the truck as much as I want because it will no longer be an antique. Even with standard registration it is still exempt from emissions because of its age.

I based my response on a 5 second Google search and another 5 seconds of reading. I have no idea just how strict the Arizona inspection stations adhere to the rules. Based on what I read, it appeared that he may have two options. The leg work to see if those options are possible is up to the OP.

The Arizona laws are similar to ours in Louisiana, only here '79 and earlier are exempt. '80 and up get the full check. Here on pre'79 they just check safety stuff such as lights, turn signals, brakes, tires etc. Although not technically legal if you read the full text in the laws, you could basically drive a pre'79 in for inspection with a fairly radical engine and pass. As long as the exhaust is fairly street legal and all the blinkers and lights work and it has good brakes(they drive it)you pass because the inspection technician is only checking what he is required to, nothing more, nothing less.

How strict is it where you live?

Here in Tn,we don't have any State inspection.Some of the cities & countys do.Memphis has always had probably the strictest that I've heard of,but,as of this month,they have dropped it.From what I understand,due to lack of money to operate it.I work in Memphis.They were trying to pass a law that if you drive into Memphis 2 or more days per week,you have to pass inspection.Then when that didn't pass,the State wouldn't help fund it,so, they just shut the inspection sites down.

I've had several cars insured as classics before, and have never been asked to verify the mileage I drove it yearly, even though they also said I could only drive it 1000 miles a year. If they ask, just tell them that your well under that amount with no problem. If they want proof, just unhook your speedo for a couple of months.
